LC COLLEGE WHAT IS AN LCC?

An LCC is a ‘Local Church College’ - in other words, a ‘pop up college’ hosted in the church you attend. Alphacrucis College (AC) provides you with access to course content for a Higher Education (HE) Diploma of Ministry (through online training videos) which is fully accredited. AC marks all the assessment work, while a leader, Pastor or church member from your church will mentor and help you apply your learning to your local church context. With accredited training you will have AC’s solid biblical & theological foundations which will complement the leadership development pathways in your church. HOW DOES IT WORK?

Students gather once a week for 1-2 hours in whatever ‘pop up college’ setting their church chooses. This can be as casual as the coffee shop or lounge room, or as sophisticated as auditorium or training rooms. Students can watch content online at their leisure and meet together with a leader or mentor from their church to study and apply the material to their church culture and context. All courses include subjects that require practical ministry experience so students get to serve and reflect on ministry areas in their local church.

FAQs HOW MUCH TIME IS NEEDED PER SUBJECT OF STUDY? Each subject of study has about 40 mins of content to watch and some reading material and assessments. Meeting with your church leader to discuss your learning and how it can be applied in your church context is encouraged. It is recommended to allow 10 hours per week per subject. WHAT KIND OF ASSESSMENTS WILL I NEED TO COMPLETE? For many of the subjects there are quizzes based on readings as well as 2 to 3 assessments to complete in the form of essays, reflections, devotional tasks and small projects. WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE PLACEMENT SUBJECTS? Placement subjects require you to have a mentor and a specific area of ministry to serve in at your church, for 100 hours over the semester. There is minimal content to watch as you will be engaging in practical experiences instead. An assessment submission will be required at the end of the placement subject. WHERE CAN THIS COURSE TAKE ME? Completion of a Diploma meets the requirements for credentialing in the Australian Christian Churches and ACTS Global (formally Apostolic Churches Australia). You can also receive credit into the Bachelor of Ministry, Theology or Leadership at AC. IS THIS COURSE FEE HELP APPROVED? Yes, for eligible students.
